2,408 Set To Travel To Leeds

2,408 Set To Travel To Leeds

Swansea City's excellent travelling away support continues as 2,408 Swans fans look set to make the trip to Leeds on Saturday.

That was the official figure of tickets sold as they went off sale last night. And with Leeds selling 25,000 or more it's set to be a superb atmosphere at Elland Road on Saturday afternoon.

Leeds will be in confident mood of getting another win and extending their run of victories to 7 after taking maximum points in the first 6 games.

The Swans won 2-1 away at Cheltenham on Friday night, coming back after going a goal behind early on.

Martinez's side will have to be at their best from kick-off if they want to gain even a point this weekend against one of the League's best teams.

Their strike partnership of Beckford and Kandol have scored 10 goals between already this season and our defence will have plenty to do during the game.

We've looked nothing but clumsy and vulnerable at the back and conceding another early goal could lead to Leeds going to another comfortable victory.

In regards to shooting stats for both clubs. Swansea are the League's second highest in terms of getting shots on at goal, with 59 on target, 36 off target and 5 hitting the woodwork.

Leeds in comparison are in 10th place, with 45 shots on target, 31 off target and 2 hitting the woodwork in all competitions.

Wise's team have scored 14 goals though this season, compared to Swansea's 10 and have conceded just 1 goal at home.

It sure is likely to be an opening goal and I think we'll do brilliantly to get a point out of the game. I think it's possible as long as we don't concede an early goal.

Are you confident Swansea can get something out of the game at Elland Road?

Our defence must work hard from the first whistle and to be fair when Painter came on at half time we did seem to be a different defence. I think it was more a frailty between Lawrence and Austin that was leading to us conceding so many goals than anything. If we can keep a clean sheet until half time then we are in with a chance of getting something from the game!

we battled hard against cheltenham to get back into the game but it won't be as easy coming from a goal or 2 down at a place like elland road. we must not concede in the first half if we want to get even a point from the game. the players have to be right up for this one and hopefully we'll have 11 players playing at their best.

conceding an early goal and we've had it as far i'm concerned, leeds are a team that are able to go on and win games convincingly with 2 or 3 goals. we'll be firmly on the back foot if we concede a goal early on.
